3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at craft & draft, Amsterdam. Sweet and zesty citrus and pineapple aroma, with pilsner malt and light celery. Slightly hazy bronze under a persistent white flannel blanket and lace. Sweet start with pilsner malt, quickly leading to zesty citrus and tropical hops and then a dry, woody bitterness and finish. Sort of Belgian fermentation, but without the peppery phenolics or esters. Medium light body, high carbonation, crisp.u

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie. Hazy orange/amber colored, medium head. Hoppy nose, lots of tropical fruit, some yeast., somewhat soapy. Hoppy, fruity, but especially a very very bitter flavor. Dry and bitter finish. Probably good in combination with food, but stand-alone actually quite out of balance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Clear amber with small bubbly off white head. Spruce, grapefruit, beeswax, resin, lemon, marmalade, quite some caramel and even a hint of fudge. Underneath it all is a light spicy yeast. Medium sweet with long lasting medium bitterness. Medium bodied with oily feel. Very oily and almost waxy beer but nicely balanced by the grapefruit notes and sweetness.
